electronic duo Autechre support the bootlegging of their shows
Q:How do you and Rob feel about live gigs being bootlegged and made available online, such as with the handful of soundboard recordings from the Untilted tour… is this something that pisses you off or do you take a positive view towards it?
A:That's great, we wouldn't ever charge for them. It's a two-way subjective process playing live. If you're not there, you're missing out on half of it anyway. I mean it's fair enough charging for the gig itself, but beyond that it's a bit weird to make money off it. The quality of the bootlegs are usually proper snuff anyway, and I think that people who want to share and listen to that stuff on their own terms are aware that they weren't there and missed out on a lot of it. Obviously I prefer mic recordings as opposed to soundboard as you get the room rather than being super dry. It's all about using the room with us playing live. The bootleg thing is going to happen isn't it?
